President Trump and his advisors demonstrated last month that they are willing to take military action in Yemen without any regard for the safety of civilians or the strategic value of a given operation. Now Trump and the Defense Department are threatening to directly involve America’s military in Yemen’s civil war, and even put American boots on the ground in Yemen, with NO input from Congress. We need your help to stop this march to war.
Yemen has been devastated from two years of civil war and constant bombardment by the Saudi-led coalition, with US support. Further military escalation could commit Americans to an outright war in a country whose civilians face constant violence and widespread malnutrition, and whose displaced can no longer seek refuge inside America’s borders.
By invoking the War Powers Resolution, Congress can intervene and stop the Trump administration from escalating US military operations in Yemen into an all-out war that can’t be won. We can’t afford to sit by and let a trigger-happy Trump administration recklessly escalate this conflict without so much as a public debate!
Please sign this petition to demand Congress take action to stop Trump from going to war in Yemen.
